Full Moon Coop started as a collective of sustainable fruit and vegetable farms founded in 2002 by a group of farmers, ecologists, culinary artists, activists, and educators. Today the farm has transformed into a small scale vegetable and fruit farm run by one enthusiastic woman. Our mission is to offer innovative and community-based solutions to the most critical environmental, economic, and social challenges of our time. By providing our local communities with an experience that honors the ancient and fundamental connections between food, land and people, we hope to nurture a more sustainable and just future. We practice organic farming techniques, and are Certified Naturally Grown.
Born in Kealakekua, Hawaii, Iwa has come a long way from her native roots. She has had her hands in the dirt for many years, most recently at the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems in Santa Cruz, where she learned to appreciate the vast amount of energy required by the land, the farmer, the plants and the animals to produce a simple meal. She hopes to help others reconnect to a simpler food system by providing mindful food and delicious recipes.
